Summer in Minnesota!!

We are still hanging out at home - working and playing and getting the yard in shape.

Got flowers planted, sprayed for spiders, weeds and poison ivy so we should be set for a while. Need to get the cedar fence replaced in front of the house and a couple service doors replaced on the garage, along with wrapping the project on the inside of the garage - epoxy the floor and get the walls sprayed and painted. We got the sheetrock up about a year ago so need to get that finished. Will be getting the main bathroom re tiled along with the backsplash in the kitchen and new carpeting in before we get serious about putting the house on the market.

Memorial weekend we spent with a bunch of our TX friends (all from MN) at the Polkafest in Clarissa MN. Did some boondocking camping and lotsa dancing and had a great time. Weather was perfect and Jim and Becky had another great crowd.
Some of the bunch is pretty mellow and then there's this crew!!

Laurita, Gayle and Lloyd

On the 1st Vicky had CMR board meeting in Park Rapids, she had an early morning as she had to be there by 8:00 - about a 2.5hr drive. She got to catch up with our old resorter friends and hear about their preparations for spring opening, reservation issues, etc. She stopped to see her sister in Wadena on the way home, getting back around 5:00pm.

This past weekend Darin & Bethany and the boys were camping at Cedar Lake near Upsala, we drove up Saturday for the day, had a couple hours of light rain but the late afternoon was quite nice. We need to get a wheel bearing and/or a brake checked on the 5er next Friday so we decided not to pull it up north in case we would have issues. We have the boys here today and staying over night, D & B have a funeral to go to in Salem, SD on Monday. Kari will be bringing Rya over this afternoon to play with the boys so hope to get some pics of the three of them to post with this.

Have a busy week of birthday parties, church meetings, brat and burger sales for church at the grocery store Friday and Saturday and then getting the bathroom and kitchen measured for the tile on Friday afternoon. Another week will fly by.

So, I guess that's it for now! Thanks for stopping by>
